More than half of 8- to 12-year olds are exposed to cyber-risks, such as cyberbullying, video game addiction, offline meetings, and online sexual behaviours, according to a report by the Digital Institute.

“The same report estimates that over 720 million children between the ages of 8 and 12 will be online by 2020,” says Dr Marlena Kruger, technology addiction and integrated health and wellness expert.

 

 

A growing number of children are mistakenly diagnosed with Functional Disconnection Syndrome (FDS) such as ADHD and Autism Spectrum Disorder. In many cases, they are also given medication such as Ritalin and Concerta.
